This edition features exclusive movie cover art!

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

"Beautiful" is certainly a word I would use to describe not just the content of this book, but the style in which the authors communicate. Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl have collaborated and produced a picture of the South that is haunting, vivid, and yes--BEAUTIFUL. I love everything about the way this book is written: the language, the descriptions, the pacing and flow. This story was a pleasure from start to finish!

Lena Duchannes is completely unlike anyone else in the small Southern town of Gatlin. She is struggling to hide her power and deal with a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Though when living in a small town secrets never stay hidden.

Ethan Wate has been counting the time until he can leave the small town of Gatlin. He is haunted by dreams of a girl he has never met. When Lena moves to town Ethan is drawn to her. Now he is determined to uncover the connection between them even if it means going to the infamous and oldest plantation in town. Ethan and Lena have a connection between them that is beyond explanation.

In a town where everything is the same all the time there is one secret that could change everything.



This is a wonderfully written story that draws the reader in. The reader gets lost in a story that comes to life with every word that is read. In a story of curses and secrets it will keep readers guessing as to just what will happen next. This one will have readers wondering just how many secrets one small town can have. This story also shows just how towns in the South don’t forget their histories. The story paints a very vivid picture of this small town that will have the reader believing that are actually there.
